Microsoft Has “Great Stuff Planned” for Gamescom’s Xbox Press Conference Post Show and More

on August 11, 2014 11:46 AM

Microsoft doesn’t just have a press conference tomorrow, but also a post show hosted by Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb and Xbox Europe Social Marketing Manage Graeme Boyd. Hryb teased the plans for the event on Twitter.

Rehearsing for the Xbox briefing post show tomorrow. Some great stuff planned.

Some hints on what we can expect were provided by Senior Xbox Evangelist Jeff Rubenstein on Hryb’s own podcast:

We’re working on a post show, and we’re basically talk about games and we’re gonna show you games, so we’ve lined up a great lineup of Xbox One games you’ll be playing this holidays, you’ll be able to see them played live, you’ll be able to ask questions of the devs.

On top of that, Senior Director of Product Management and Planning Albert Penello also tweeted that if you want into the preview program for Xbox One and you’re at Gamescom, all you have to do is to track down him or Hryb, and you’ll get your code.

You can also track me down, and you’ll get a hug. No seriously.

Jokes aside, Penello also mentioned that Hryb and him are planning some “fun ideas” for the event:

@Abriael that would be great! @majornelson and I are thinking about some fun ideas. Watch this space!

Microsoft seems to have all its barrels loaded and ready to fire at the show. You’ll be able to read all about it starting tomorrow here on DualShockers.
